Scottish Construction Can Restart Immediately


Scotland’s construction sector can now restart work

The First Minister has just announced today that the construction sector can now move to Phase 2 of the restart plan, meaning Scottish Construction can return to work immediately with appropriate Covid-19 Site Operating Procedures in place.

The industry-agreed six-step phased model for the return of the construction sector is:

  • Phase 0: Planning
  • Phase 1: COVID-19 Pre-start Site prep
  • Phase 2: ‘Soft start’ to site works (only where physical distancing can be maintained)
  • Phase 3: Steady state operation (only where physical distancing can be maintained)
  • Phase 4: Steady state operation (where physical distancing can be maintained and/or with PPE use)
  • Phase 5: Increasing density/productivity with experience

Good News!
